Weekly Meal Plan

Wow, it's been a while since I've actually posted a menu plan.  Things have been crazy, life has been hectic and this is one thing that's taken a back burner.  Can I just tell you how much I've missed my meal planning? 

Even though I don't pair specific recipes with certain days, it helps me out so much having a set menu for the week.  I know what I'm going to make throughout the week and I have all the ingredients on hand so there's no last minute runs to the store.  It makes life so much easier having meals planned rather than getting home and spending 30 minutes or more perusing cookbooks and blogs and finally deciding on something only to find out you don't have everything you need to make it.  It's just frustrating.  And can I tell you I've been in that particular boat for the past, ummm...I don't know how many weeks.  It seems like half the time I ended up giving up, or it got too late so we just ended up either eating cereal or running to pick up take-out.

As much as I love a good pizza or order of Chinese, I hate relying on them.  I like for them to be a "treat" rather than a regular meal during the week.  Not to mention, not having a meal plan really takes a toll on the ol' pocketbook too.  It's amazing how much more money we spend when I don't have meals planned out.  So in order to eat better and to save some $$$ I'm getting back in the practice of lining out weekly menus!
